The Hamner Theater on behalf of the CVTA (Central Virginia Theater Alliance) is pleased to announce the first ever area-wide general auditions to be held on Sat., Oct. 13 at PVCC (Piedmont Virginia Community College) in the black box theater in the V. Earl Dickinson Building. This is an opportunity to be entered in the Players Guide for the area, a resource for all producing theaters and companies. Attending theaters are Ash Lawn Opera, Heritage Theater Festival, PlayOn!, Four County Players, the Hamner Theater, Live Arts, Offstage, Big Blue Door and our host, PVCC. Actors are asked to prepare one or two contrasting monologues (classical/contemporary or comic/dramatic) or if musical theater is your thing, a monologue and 32 bars of a song. There will be an accompanist on site. Auditions will be held from 10am – 1pm – please sign up for a 5 minute slot on the CVTA website, www.cvta.info. We ask that actors bring a headshot and resume – we will have a digital camera at the auditions in case you have no headshot and there is a form on the CVTA website that will do for a resume.
This is an opportunity to see the theatrical options available in the area – different theaters do different kinds of theater – and to talk to the different theater representatives and find out what’s going on in their venues. It is also an opportunity to be seen by the Artistic Directors of the area theaters as well as directors of season productions on an occasion when they are not all trying to cast a specific part – you the actor are there to present yourself and be entered in the area guide to actors. This is an exciting event, long overdue – many regions have general auditions twice a year! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be part of the larger Central Virginia theater scene.
